Your story about Lo Sim, the survivor of Tuol Sleng Prison (Post, March 10) is the

first time I have learned about her experience. She is from my birthplace. I was

born in Phum Prek Ta Duong, Koh Thom, Kandal. I left Cambodia in 1972, went to Paris,

came back in 1976, and worked in Re-education Camp B-30 (Boeng Trabek).

I recall that one night Angkar sent us to Olympic Stadium for a meeting. We walked

right behind Tuol Sleng Prison without knowing at that time that it was the torture

and killing place. I would like to know how Lo Sim ended up in that prison and how

she survived.

Please could you cash my $150 check [enclosed] and give $100 to her and $50 to Chan

Sorn, the elderly lady selling coconuts in front of the Royal Palace (Post, January

27). I love her smile
